Do you have some terms for Arabic work-up, or do you need specialized dictionaries? Sep 28, 2004

Greetings... ahalan wa sahalan...

Do you have some terms to be rendered into their Arabic equivalents, or do you need specialized dictionaries?

Khair, in sha' Allah.

Specific phrases Sep 29, 2004

I need opinons on translations for the following:

skydive (noun and verb)
to surf (skysurf) and surfboard
freefly (as a discipline of skydiving)
to fly (yourself, speaking of skydivers, not a plane)

And any pointers to specialized dictionaries (printed or online) would probably be helpful. There's supposed to be a parachuting club in Saudi Arabia but I have not been able to locate a website for it.
